County Council announces Kinvara housing plans

Galway County Council has announced its plans to build a 10 unit housing development in Kinvara.

The council has given notice this week that it intends to build an estate with ten houses at Cartron, Kinvara in accordance with Part 8 planning requirements.

The development will consist of 2 single-storey, two-bed dwellings; 4 dormer, two-bed dwellings; and 4 two-storey, two-bed dwellings.

“Proposals include estate access road, realignment of existing local road, signage, landscaping, connections to existing services and all ancillary site development works.”

A preliminary examination for an Environmental Impact Assessment was undertaken for this development, which concluded that there would not be any significant environmental effects.

Because of this the council has said that a full EIA is not required for this housing development.

Similarly the council has also said that a full Natura Impact Statement is not needed after a Stage 1 Appropriate Assessment screening took place.

The plans for this housing project will be available for viewing or purchase at county hall and the council’s Loughrea offices during normal office hours, Monday – Friday, until July 20.

Public submissions related to this project can be made to the county council until August 4.
